"mad money" with jim cramer starts right now. i'm jim cramer. and welcome to my world. you need to get in the game. going out of business and he's nuts, they're nuts! they know nothing! i always like to say there's a bull market somewhere -- "mad money," you can't afford to miss it. hey, i'm cramer. welcome to "mad money," welcome to cramerica. other people want to make friends, i'm just trying to save you a little money. my job is not just to entertain you but to educate. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. even on days like today where
6:02pm
the fed didn't say anything we didn't already know, but people used it as an excuse, an excuse to take some profits. dow dipping 44 points, s&p sinking .39%. nasdaq declining .36%. you can feel the pain -- >> the house of pain. >> it's the pain of the bearish money managers being overridden by the -- you guessed it. and that's precisely why i don't expect this pullback to last too long. because we have a powerful force pushing this market higher. i'm talking about the attempts by money managers to keep up with the galloping averages and the heartache those averages are causing. >> all aboard -- >> all right. lots of people have been talking about the return of the little guy to the market. and how that's driving stocks higher. oh, yeah, it's a factor. it's only a piece of something
6:03pm
much bigger that may be behind a huge amount of this january advance that i got to put in context for you and i've got to do it tonight. it all begins with a fourth quarter gross domestic product we started the day off with. here we go again, .1% drop. especially when you consider the 3.1% gain we had in the previous quarter. that's amazing. this number was mind-numbing. when i saw it, i shouted -- o-m-g. but of course, no one could hear me because at that moment i had no voice whatsoever. instead of this ridiculous froggy master imitation i'm doing right now. all right. anyway, the gdp number reeks of recession. but in truth, many things that are happening in this market stem from that number. i think two factors caused this incredibly poor gdp performance. one manmade and one caused by mother nature.
6:04pm
i'm talking about all that chatter about the fiscal cliff. and hurricane sandy. let's start with the former. you know what? we never have a memory for the fear certain events engendered. but it was only a month ago that our country seemed on the verge of an astounding series of negative events courtesy of that cliff. the air was thick with charges and anger and partisanship, frankly it was kind of insane. the worst since congress after the civil war. it was a terrible time for the republic. we were the world's laughing stock, it was impossible, impossible for individuals or companies to figure out what they could possibly do without knowing what would happen with their taxes. the uncertainty was horrendous, the mood sour. . we were getting all sorts of cross currents about what would happen with corporate and personal taxes. were they going to raise taxes, were capital gains going up? would the alternative minimum tax snare millions of people?
6:05pm
would businesses have to start a whole brand new round of layoffs? executive after executive came on this show to say, look, we can't do a thing. what's the point? we will just have to undo it. business confidence plummeted, and the idea of forming a new business. well, remember when the ceo of paychex came on and talked about the paralysis caused by the cliff? who would leave his job to start a new business in that environment? okay. retail sales weren't that bad. but they nose dived right at the end of the quarter. retailers were afraid to restock inventory figuring that spending would drop off the cliff right along with the nation's finances. it was all in all a very bad time for our nation. now, overlay the storm of the century for the northeast. one that shut down the
6:06pm
wealthiest area of the country for several weeks and caused what ultimately may be $100 billion in damage. you had the physical shutdown from the storm neatly and miserably dovetailing with the mental shutdown caused by washington. the result, the abysmal and artificially reduced gross domestic product number we saw today. most money managers are fixated on that top-down analysis. they look at those numbers, they care, they correctly detected the secession the business in this country was undergoing. they pulled in their horns because of it. some cases, dramatically. i understood it. say we came in to 2013 over the fiscal cliff. i would say the vast majority of money managers out there believed we could be down 5%, 6%, 10% on the s&p and there was no sense of taking that kind of beating. why not raise cash coming into the year?
6:07pm
why not raise cash the last week of december? at the same time, individuals wanted to beat the higher taxes. many cashed out of their -- on their gains. in the personal accounts, in their i.r.a.s, they raised cash knowing they might need that cash to pay much higher taxes. the taxes that a failed attempt to fix the cliff would produce. a huge amount of dough moved to the sidelines immediately. companies themselves accelerated payouts, putting tens of billions of dollars in the hands of shareholders who had no idea what to do with the money other than sit on it. so we came into the new year and we were paralyzed. inventories lean, huge part of the country damaged by a storm, totally dysfunctional food fight government. and we're brimming with cash. everywhere for the biggest rainy day of all. the day we jumped over the cliff. but then we don't do the cliff
6:08pm
dive. and contra to bob dylan, the hard rain, it didn't fall. in fact, we didn't get that much. we didn't get dinged except for the rich, who are the most able to handle it. all right, yeah, i can make a big deal about payroll tax thing, no problem. nevertheless, it's a small fraction of what we really feared. stocks kept their favored status, including relatively low taxes on dividends. something i do not know a soul who predicted. so we get a huge case of sellers remorse and the stock money comes right back in, the business that was put on hold comes pouring back, hiring begins again, business formation restarts, inventories get rebuilt and a totally different january from one that anyone expected. sure we can try to make a big deal out of this sequestration. i won't. i think it's a huge mistake to do so. we have a breakout of peace in washington and the big business money, cantor, not speaker
6:09pm
boehner who's viewed with suspicion by corporate executives. and cantor doesn't want the business derailed anymore. he recognized that's, well, bad for business. >> all aboard! >> that means we get either a peaceful solution on sequestration or the government to cut. which, by the way, most americans view as virtuous. on top of that, you know what we do? we keep those super low rates that ben bernanke's fed committed to again today making dividend stocks with their terrific tax status ever more cherished. meanwhile, housing gaining steam, inventories are lean. at the same time, we haven't even started the massive sandy rebuild. this confluence while fabulous for our nation happens to be a nightmare for money managers. a ton of the money coming in is going right to the s&p 500. and that's off like a rocket. plus the dow jones average
6:10pm
chocked full of companies that benefit from overseas markets which are improving, including europe, yes, europe, well, they're trooping higher too. that means bearish money managers, they have to scramble to keep up with the joneses and the s&ps. competing with the passive indices to justify their own reason for being the gigantic buybacks executed every day make the job more difficult. there's not enough stock around to save all these buyers. okay. now at a certain point, the market's got to cool down. as those who took the big risk of buying when others were selling, well, you know what? they ring the register. they cut back some of their holdings, that's today's markets to a tee. plus, when valuations get stretched as they're being now, earnings have to be pretty darn good to justify the runs. although we all know that disappointment produces dips that bring in buyers, not
6:11pm
sellers. but good earnings like we had tonight from sky works, jdsu, qualcomm, citrix and, you know, decent numbers from facebook. they can and probably will cause a buying panic with all of their bright tidings. all right, here's the bottom line. it's clear. fund managers have to chase stocks and put money to work. on up days and down days like this one to keep up with the averages that are benefitting from washington's exit from the business pages. and that robust housing market aided by the coming sandy rebuild. we can have breathers like today, but you know what? they are pauses that refresh and nothing more. robert in new york. robert? >> caller: long time listener from day one, mr. cramer. first-time caller. >> well, tonight will be a challenge to listen because of my voice, but i appreciate it. >> caller: clf recently announced a fourth quarter $1.4 billion noncash good will impairment charge. jim, can you please explain what
6:12pm
that means and how it plays into dave einhorn's ramp-up in china. is cliffs a buy, hold, or sell -- >> i'm not a cliffs guy. they overextended themselves. if you want to play, my charitable trust owns vale. they've already reduced expectations and i think it can go higher. it's a powerful force at work, people, in this market. money managers desperate to keep up with the averages. i think it will make pullbacks like today on a trip to higher levels. "mad money" will be right back. coming up -- core positions? oil prices are back in the rise. and domestic production continues to expand. wondering how you can profit from america's energy potential? don't miss cramer's earnings exclusive with the ceo of core labs to discover if it's ready to cash in on crude.
6:13pm
and later, the prime time retail king that delivers everything to your door versus the maker of gadgets you never knew you needed but now can't live without. the market's picked its favorite. could things be about to change quickly? stick around for cramer's take all coming up on "mad money." don't miss a second of "mad money." follow @jimcramer on twitter, have a question? tweet cramer #madtweets. send jim an e-mail to madmoney@cnbc.com. or give us a call at 1-800-743-cnbc. miss something? head to madmoney.cnbc.com. all stations come over to mission a for a final go.

6:15pm
6:16pm
i'm always talking about the north american oil renaissance. that huge surge in domestic energy production made possible by both new discoveries and more importantly new technology for getting oil out of the ground. but i don't stress the value of the technology enough. and how it's being used internationally, particularly to
6:17pm
explore in deep waters where big oil finds are just now being exploited. given what many people believe to be the permanently global price of crude. it's a terrific time to come back to our favorite tech company in the oil and gas industry. i'm talking about core lab, clb, a company that uses its expertise to help oil producers figure out how much crude them in the ground. core doesn't just gather intelligence, they also do production enhancement. they can tell oil producers the best place to drill in order to squeeze for crude out of the oil fields. where they show their clients how to maximize their return on the investment in a given oil field. in short, if you're an oil company anywhere on earth, you want core labs to get the most out of your assets. schlumberger and weatherford have started to compete in the space. now, core labs just reported after the close today, delivered a real good quarter. earnings coming in $1.17, 4 cent
6:18pm
beat, better than expected revenues, upside guidance for 2013. this is a stock i've liked for ages. we spoke to the ceo one year ago. and since then, core labs is up 10%, good, not as good as s&p over the same period. longrd here is tremendous. the first time we had core labs on the show back on august of 2006, stocks given you a 228% gain with reinvested dividends. we've had him on the show seven times since "mad money" began, each time core labs was higher than the last. you're going to want to pay close attention now that we have david dempshire back. find out more about the quarter where his company's headed. welcome back to "mad money." >> hey, jim, thanks for having us back on "mad money." glad to be here. >> first, do we have a lot more oil than we realize both in this country and the world? because the places you're exploring, most of them i've never even heard of. >> well, yeah, jim, if you look at the unconventional resources in north america, there's a bountiful number of plays left
6:19pm
to be discovered. and so the amount being produced today is at about a 15-year high in crude oil production. when we look at plays like the bakken, the eagleford, and core labs believes there's one, possibly two more oil unconventional plays left to be discovered north america. so, yes, with added technology, with fracking and our fractured diagnostic technology, we are helping our clients recover more and more of this unconventional oil. >> there may be two more big ones that we don't even know about yet? >> yeah, we believe there's one, possibly two left in north america that will come out over the next couple of years. >> that's incredible. now, i also detect some countries, looks like to me that mexico's getting back in the game and starting to drill much more seriously than it used to. >> yes, jim, that's exactly right. mexico's looking offshore now in the deep water. as you know the gulf of mexico deep water has been prolific, and that trend curves around
6:20pm
toward mexico. so you will see over the next several years, a lot more deepwater plays offshore mexico. we believe there's potential there for billions of barrels of additional recoverable oil. if you look at mexican production, it's off some 2 million barrels. they need this deepwater development and core lab will be there to help them. >> i know mexico's deregulating the gasoline. they have much more money. they're committing right now to much bigger projects. >> yes, and this includes, again, the offshore where some of these wells could cost $100 million to $300 million to drill. and when wells are that expensive and these environments are that hostile, you need a lot more science to be used, and when a lot more science is used, they call on core laboratories. we look at their rock properties, their fluid properties to ensure they recover the optimal amount of oil and gas every day, but more importantly, the amount of maximum oil to be taken out of that reservoir over the life of
6:21pm
the production. >> you're also the first company i've seen that is actually really starting to make money in iraq. >> yes, that's right, jim. we now have 12 projects in iraq. they are some of the most profitable in the company. we are working on the redevelopment of those fields in the south. some of the big fields there. but also, there's been discoveries into north up in the kurdistan area. it's difficult to push more oil out of those. however, using core lab technology, we're going to show our clients there what's the best way to have maximum recovery from these reservoirs that are undersaturated in natural gas. >> and you're going back to older fields. i know the north sea. the north sea is supposed to be running out of oil, but they're bringing you back in to find more? >> that's correct, jim. we're working on a number of projects. a record number of projects in the north sea out of our aberdeen technology center. and what we're trying to do is
6:22pm
lessen the amount of water cut or increase the amount of oil production out of some of these old wells. the north sea started to produce oil and gas back in 1975. so it is an aging petroleum province. aging petroleum provinces are perfect for core lab because our technology will help them as you say squeeze more oil and gas out of those older fields. >> last question, a lot of the other companies that i deal with and service, they've been hurt by weak natural gas prices in the united states. that is not hurting core labs, is it? >> that's right, jim, if you look at our technology, it's better applied to international crude oil related projects. so if you look at our revenue mixed right now, we are 80% crude oil and 20% natural gas. half of that natural gas revenue comes from large lng developments like we have novell in the mediterranean, chevron and exxon off the west coast of australia. so these large lng plays play
6:23pm
into our strength, as well. >> well, i've got to tell you. this is the best quarter i've had you on of all of them. so thank you very much, david demshur. >> thank you so much, jim, our seventh time has been a real pleasure. >> the stock tends to get hit after the company reports and then you buy. i don't know if it's going to get hit this time. that's how good clb's quarter was. core labs is bankable and so is the company. stay with cramer. coming up -- the prime time retail king that delivers everything to your door versus the maker of gadgets you never knew you needed but now can't live without. the market's picked its favorite. but could things be about to change quickly? stick around for cramer's take.
6:24pm
6:25pm
6:26pm
the first thing you need to know about wall street is that there is no such thing as equal justice under the market.
6:27pm
you can't expect all stocks to be treated fairly, and you'd be insane to think all stocks will be treated equally. that's not how the game works. we have a system where different types of stocks are treated in very different ways. i know this is something that can be incredibly confusing to people. let's take a moment now to explain using two household tech names that just reported. i'm talking about apple and amazon. how does what's happened with these two stocks make sense? last week apple reports a less than stellar quarter. but they managed to beat the street's estimates. it doesn't matter. stock gets pounded falling some 64 points or 12.4% on a single day. >> the house of pain. >> the iphone numbers were a little light at 47.8 million versus estimates of 48 million. but apple sold more ipads than expected. and the gross margin was better than investors feared, yet the
6:28pm
stock still got put through the meat grinder. then last night, amazon reports a flat out miss. the company earned 21 cents when the analysts were looking for 27 cents. the street was expecting to bring in amazon to bring in $22.6 billion in revenues, they fell short of that number by more than $1.3 billion smackers. wow, what a shortfall. now, amazon has an incredibly lofty valuations, selling for 68 times earnings. and that's without backing up the $137 billion of cash they're sitting on. so you'd think when amazon disappoints, it would get hit much, much harder than apple because high-multiple stocks that miss the numbers have much farther to fall. yet, that's not what happened. instead amazon shot up roughly 10% in the aftermarket, not down 10%. up 10%. as investors decided the quarter
6:29pm
was actually a thing of beauty despite the missed numbers. amazon managed to deliver higher gross margins. what they make after the cost of sale and finished today's session at $272, up $12.41. how the heck does that make sense? isn't this just another example of the market's utter ridiculousness? no. it would be crazy if apple and amazon weren't playing by the same set of rules, but they're not. amazon is viewed correctly as a turbo charge growth stock, taking share and investing huge sums of money to build out its business in order to become the premier global e-commerce and fulfillment company. and when you have that kind of growth trajectory, the market will let you get away with almost anything. apple used to be viewed as a growth stock just like amazon, hence the long run up to 700. but now it's lost the growth.
6:30pm
they're asking questions, they're demanding answers, particularly why apple isn't using all that cash to get more growth or earnings or something. because it isn't doing did dly. their growth is seen as real and sustainable. let me drill down so you understand this growth/nongrowth dichotomy because it's really important. amazon can get away with so much more than apple because they still got that aura of growth. for example, amazon can say they're investing in china. give us no more detail than that. people lap it up. yet, we demand to know exactly how many iphones apple is selling in china right now to the unit. amazon can say they can't keep up with demand for the paper white, the ereader and nothing more, give us no other details. who knows how many they've made, sold, how much money they're making on them. can you imagine if apple didn't spell out how many tablets it
6:31pm
sold? if apple didn't make enough, we would call them idiots for missing the whole holiday season. when asked if they're going to have new devices, amazon says stay tuned, we would tar and feather apple management if they said something like that. meanwhile, we are so worried about apple maintaining the huge growth margins it has. a teeny weeny increase. we want apple to predict with great certainty how many devices it'll sell. but amazon, it makes a point -- within the text, not the boilerplate opening, that it's not possible to accurately predict demand and results that could differ materially from our guidance. this right after apple says it's going to give very realistic guidance. how much is amazon making on the third party fulfillment? meaning letting others tap into the supply chain to deliver
6:32pm
goods quickly? how about, oh, hundreds of millions of units worth, tens of billions of dollars? what is this like mcdonald's selling billions and billions of burgers, does that count as disclosure too? let's try to pin amazon down. they did in a previous release give us a detailed breakdown of what they're doing. we learned, for instance, that third party sellers sold enough santa hats to be able to wear a new hat for santa, to be able to wear a new hat every day for the next 137 years. number of santa hats per share ratio. they sold enough guitar picks to give one to every attender of wood stock. the old price to pick analysis. they sold enough tea lights to keep a votive illuminated continuously for over 200 years. the all-important votive to sales ratio! does amazon make more money full
6:33pm
tilling other people's products than their own? that's for us to know and you to find out. that's how the company works. we did find out that ebooks are up big and amazon owns the ebook category. but how big? guess again. sorry, none of your bees wax. amazon's conference call had fewer facts than a donald rumsfeld speech. so what gives here? well, first, they can get away with it because amazon has virtually no competitors, which means when they want to, they can start showing all the earnings they want. they just have to stop spending to invest in new business. but like netflix and salesforce.com, the other two spendaholics, amazon wants to take over the world, that costs money. apple, apple's like a realist painter. winslow, homer, it's trapped in an unfair world of realism.
6:34pm
amazon, it's an abstract artist. and its share price defies what you expect at conventional stock options. it still has the visionary founder and ceo. netflix, another high-flier, it has reid hastings at the helm still, salesforce.com, amazon has visionary beezos, and the price can be infinite, bezos, laughing all the way to the bank. apple has real competition from samsung. with an android operating system with the visionaries from google. sure the market's big, but samsung's beating apple in cell phone share and perhaps more important, apple's phones may not be good enough to take that share back.
6:35pm
tablets are terrific. but apple's lost the invinceability that extends to the tablet market. apple has compounded the problem by releasing a faulty map app, a new cord, and i like the old one, and a disliked itunes iteration. it's no longer the only game in town. amazon's total addressable market if it can perfect same-day delivery, which it is going to do with all of these warehouses, is literally all of retail, everything, everything sold at costco, walmart, supermarket, department store, food store, hardware store around the globe. maybe one day selling houses and boats if u.p.s. can figure out a way to deliver them. the addressable market may be no longer than the personal computer and cell phone replacement segment. and many think in a few years, those markets will be saturated. nobody will be able to get the cheap capital again to build the network that amazon's building. the mote, it's huge, they live in kcamelot.
6:36pm
the market says they're on the wrong side of the tech tracks, even as i know only one person who uses anything except apple and that's steve balmer, my college friend who runs microsoft. i didn't hear anything from blackberry today that tells me the erosion won't continue. but the market's saying so what. apple's a has been and amazon's future has never been brighter. amazon makes money selling the eblades, the business model is loved. apple, though, is a raizor. apple has to constantly innov e innovate, but the old razors are working well with the new blades. the valuations for amazon, anything, eye of the beholder. if apple wants to regain the petina of growth, apple's sitting on $137 billion of cash, amazon's market cap, $123 billion, apple should buy amazon. something to restore the
6:37pm
company's status as an invulnerable growth stock. life is unfair. the great stock prognosticator jimmy carter told us that. i say cry me a river the size of the amazon because apple's rain forest eco system is being challenged by development everywhere. when you have turbo charged growth, you can get away with anything. and reality places no limits on how high your stock can go. they should bite the bullet and buy amazon. and hey, they could keep jeff bezos as ceo restoring the stock's visionary premium. john in illinois. john? >> caller: hey, jim, how you doing? >> all right, what's going on? >> caller: i got a crazed super computer for you, man. company headquartered out in seattle, washington, i did a little homework on it. i found good cash, little or no debt. but the one thing that stood out
6:38pm
to me, i was wondering because of the limited -- possible limited market is the future growth. is it -- can we see -- >> no, you know what? i think you got a winner, but i think you should take half off the table. i looked at that company before, i'm shocked it's gotten this high. i want you to cut it in half. sometimes the market isn't fair. the market wants growth, amazon has it. apple, it's got enough, but i've got to tell you, the market regards it as subpar growth now. and apple, look, if they want to do it -- if they want to get it back, they've got real work to do. stay with cramer.

6:42pm
of my stock? i really like the dividend. >> i do too. i think you're okay in that dividend. i would stay in that stock. let's go to erik in florida. eric? >> caller: jim, symbol -- >> speculative and red hot. understand people are saying there's a bubble bursting in 3d. be careful, it's a good company. but the stock is very rich. i still like the concept, though. let's go to robert in new york. robert? >> caller: jim, a real big b-b-boo-yah for joseph a. banks. >> no, i'm looking for a 15% off sale. a two for one. i don't like that quarter at all. let's go to eric in california. eric? >> caller: hey, boo-yah, jim. >> boo-yah, chief. what's up? >> caller: thank you for taking my call. question for you, i have duke energy and i have energy transport. which -- >> no, sell energy transport.

nonretreats, kinder morgan is snapping up the pipeline partner. in order to get much bigger in the very business he personified. what's so comical and twisted about this? aubrey mcclendon built chesapeake on the notion of rising demand and rising prices of natural gas and natural gas liquids would make the business he co-founded into the greatest independent oil and gas company on earth. he had already made chesapeake into the second largest producer of natural gas in the country after exxon mobile, but prices didn't rise for natural gas or natural gas liquids. used to make all kinds of plastics. instead, they plummeted. aubrey bet the company on the idea that natural gas would not only become the natural power generated fuel it is becoming overtaking coal, but it would also become a major surface vehicle fuel, the latter which makes so much sense, simply didn't happen or take off in
6:56pm
time to boost chesapeake. aubrey is saying he's retired, but other sources are saying he was forced out. a victim of the ways that have always been his hallmark. but just at the exact moment when he departs, rich kinder, the dean of t complex in the u.s. swoops up the partner in pipelines in order to get more exposure to the transfer of, you guessed it, natural gas and natural gas liquids from the eagleford shale among others, two refineries that can turn fuel into plastic. kinder's saying the revolution that aubrey bet his company on is now upon us. aubrey didn't get there in time. i believe that chesapeake's decision to remove the man who has discovered more nat gas and liquids than anyone else on earth will mark the bottom in pricing for oil natural gas. kinder morgan knows they will need that pipe from the big oily fields in this country before it commits to a huge industrial
6:57pm
buildout to take advantage of the cheapness of our natural gas. his timing, it's as exquisite as chesapeake's is awful. you can't blame the board for actions with aubrey. we know they always like the assets, but they chafed against the man who found them. he pretty much told us that when we visited him in ohio's utica shale last year. and while chesapeake has excellent prospects, aubrey had indeed overstretched the balance sheet and company had been in retreat mode to meet the cash flow obligations. mcclendon bet the style wrangled the board. all that said, though, chesapeake can survive and even thrive if rich kinder's right about the copano buy. i think he might be. we haven't seen the last of aubrey mcclendon. we haven't seen the last of chesapeake. it will downsize but remain a key oil and gas producer. but the real victory here is rich kinder. he can take advantage of all of that drilling and aubrey and so many others have done and bring that to market making a real
6:58pm
killing for the shareholders and partners. kinder's gotten to the promise land that aubrey dreamed of. his kinder morgan partners is the winner and chesapeake the loser in the amazing united states oil renaissance. stick with cramer.
